Braxton Hicks contractions come from a Doctor named John Braxton Hicks. He was the first doctor to ever describe what these type of contractions were. This was back in the mid-late 1800s.
you can have braxton hicks for a long time weeks or months there is no way to tell
How can you tell the difference between braxton hicks contractions and real contractions?
NO because braxton hicks is just a temporary contraction, not increasing in frequency and interval.

It could be contractions or it could be false contractions (Braxton Hicks)
Braxton Hicks contractions start about 6 weeks but normally are not felt until the second or third trimester.

Np. It is not normal to have braxton hicks contractions as early as four months during pregnancy.
Small achy type pains could be small contractions called braxton-hicks.
Braxton Hicks can be quite regular and can come 5 or 10 minutes apart but they are not making changes in the cervix. The easiest way to tell Braxton Hicks from true labor is to drink a glass of water or juice, and change your activity. If walking, lie down - if lying down, take a walk. Labor will not stop when you move around or stop what you are doing, Braxton Hicks generally will. If you are having regular contractions it is best to call your doctor or hospital for an evaluation - many women have quite painful Braxton Hick's and many women have very little pain from early contractions that could signal early labor.

I did not have any contractions and I was dialated to a 2. Braxton hicks do not normally make you dialate. Real contractions do make you dialatel
